Python: Find the item with maximum occurrences in a given list

Python List: Exercise - 110 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the item with maximum occurrences in a given list.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def max_occurrences(nums):
    max_val = 0
    result = nums[0] 
    for i in nums:
        occu = nums.count(i)
        if occu > max_val:
            max_val = occu
            result = i 
    return result

nums = [2,3,8,4,7,9,8,2,6,5,1,6,1,2,3,4,6,9,1,2]
print ("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("\nItem with maximum occurrences of the said list:")
print(max_occurrences(nums)) 

Sample Output:

Original list:
[2, 3, 8, 4, 7, 9, 8, 2, 6, 5, 1, 6, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 1, 2]

Item with maximum occurrences of the said list:
2

Python: Tips of the Day

Clamps num within the inclusive range specified by the boundary values x and y:

Example:

def tips_clamp_num(num,x,y):
  return max(min(num, max(x, y)), min(x, y))
print(tips_clamp_num(2, 4, 6))
print(tips_clamp_num(1, -1, -6))

Output:
